The Red Wagon Farm Crew picking your CSA snap peas this morning.
Snap peas and mint are one of my favorite flavor combinations. The snap pea season is very short. I try to make this super simple dish at least two or three times while the snap peas are on. This dish is a great example of the flavors being more than a sum of their parts. The mint melts onto the garlic scapes and lightens their flavor and brings out the sweetness of the snap peas.
2 teaspoons olive oil
3/4 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed
2 tablespoons of garlic scapes or green onion
pinch of salt and pepper
2 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sugar snap peas, garlic scapes or green onion. Season with salt and pepper. Stir-fry for 4 minutes try to get a little bit of a sear on the peas, then remove from heat and stir in the mint leaves.
